THE LONG HAUL – Restoring Hope for Long COVID Recovery | Documentary | HBRF


As the world continues grappling with the repercussions of the COVID-19 pandemic, a bigger picture is beginning to develop as to just how long lasting its effects may be. An estimated 1 in 13 U.S. adults are currently experiencing symptoms of Long COVID Syndrome. That’s over 20,000,000 people in the U.S. alone. Doctors and scientists are struggling to find a real solution to this debilitating condition and treatment options are limited.

Always dedicated to finding solutions for people with unmet clinical needs, the Hope Biosciences Research Foundation launched a small 10 patient clinical trial to study stem cell therapy as a potential treatment for those suffering from long Covid.

In this special documentary presentation, we hear the personal accounts of five COVID-19 long haulers as they recount their experience living with long COVID and the clinical trial that gave them their life back.

In September of 2021, the Hope Biosciences Research Foundation received FDA approval for an 80 patient, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial to study the use of allogeneic HB-adMSCs for the treatment of patients with Long COVID Syndrome. The trial is currently enrolling participants.
